    The Disclaimer




    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp
    . The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain!
    If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    Claudette Colbert in THE SIGN OF THE CROSS. The one woman who could make me straight!

    I didn't know My Little Chickadee was coming out in a separate release. Sextette a few weeks ago, and now this one. If only someone would put out The Heat Is On, we'd have all the Mae West films on disc.

    Not sure who lives by a Fred Meyer, but they have two advertised specials this week that are pretty good:


    $9.99 titles on Blu-ray: RED (Special Edition w/ Lossless audio), Eat Pray Love, Karate Kid (remake), Alvin and the Chipmunks (Squeakquel), Black Swan and Grownups.

    Selected Sony Blu-ray and DVD titles B1G1: Over 160 titles. Pictured titles are Year One, Mall Cop and Step Brothers.


    Red and Black Swan for $9.99 are too good to pass up if you don't have them.

    Nothing again this week. No Strings Attached and Some Like It Hot are somewhere in my Netflix queue, I'm sure. Thanks Mike!

    Aw shit, I'd love to get Black Swan for $9.99, but I've never even heard of a Fred Meyer store. I mean, it'll be selling for ten bucks by the end of the year somewhere else, but I'd love to have that movie right now.

    Thanks Mike for the Colbert You Tube link. Two kitties drinking from the bath at the end of the clip. Subtle.

    Thanks for another WRU, Mike.


    Not much of interest to me this week other than that BB trade-in deal and maybe The Illusionist and Something Wild on rental and/or if/when their prices come down a lot -- well, guess I might be interested in upgrading Something Like It Hot if/when its price gets slashed deeper as well.


    I'm a little confused by the wording of that BB trade-in deal though:



    That whole thing (including the sentence I emphasized) reads to me like you wouldn't get whatever current sale pricing (vs BB's regular non-sale pricing) when using the coupons, but then the actual listed sample cases would seem to have the coupons applied to current sale prices.


    So would the coupons be applied on top of whatever current sale prices? Perhaps, "original price" just meant the current sale price for each of those select titles?


    Anyway, the BB site seems to have a full list of those qualifying titles at this link, but no prices are listed for them:


    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Movies+Promotions/null/pcmcat240800050006.c?id=pcmcat240800050006&h=387


    There are some interesting titles there. Anyone know the details of that 1-disc Hereafter? Didn't know there was a 1-disc version (and not sure I see it listed on BB's site). Is it just exactly the same as the BD in the combo pack minus the DVD and digital copy? For instance, does it still include all the extras, including the relatively lengthy doc on Eastwood? I rented it from Blockbuster, but only got the movie-only rental exclusive version.


    Thanks again...

    I love Home Improvement but I never bought any of the DVDs. Now with this Limited Edition Toolbox set AND Amazon's promotional $20 off the current $89.99 price (code: HOMEIMPR), you can get this entire set for $69.99: $8.75 per season plus the extra stuff! It's still expensive overall, but this deal is too good (unless the price goes down even more after ordering it).

    Bieber Fever Time!

    (not for me . . . for my daughters)


    Amazon has matched BB's and Target's $19.99 price on Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (Blu-ray + Combo +Digital Copy). I just pre-ordered my copy using the HTF link above.


    Thanks as always for the WRU Mike!


    And, based on the above discussion (and the YouTube clip), I have added Sign of the Cross to my Netflix queue.
